Welcome to the STEM+C Project at Boise State!
Informal STEM Teaching & Learning Through Infusing Computational Thinking into Science Learning
This STEM+C project was enabled by a grant awarded from the National Science Foundation (NSF) (Award Abstract #1640228). This project builds on and pilots a Community Center After-school Program (CCAP) model for integrating computational thinking (CT) across K-12 STEM disciplines (STEM+C) at three community centers and their three affiliated Kid City Programs (6 locations) in Boise, Idaho.
Motivation for this project is based on the national urgency of integrating CT in K-12 STEM education, a lack of qualified K-12 computing teachers, and the local need for quality STEM+C programs for high needs students. The CCAP model focuses on student learning and teacher professional development (PD) through pre-/in-service teacher-led, project-based, integrated STEM+C inquiry projects offered through community centers’ after school programs.
